My Bedspread Find
April 7, 2016 8:49am CST
Since moving here last fall, I've made up my bed with an old cotton bedspread that served the purpose, but that's about it. I also found a very inexpensive comforter that I liked at first. But as so many cheap products are, it's made of polyester, so it's too warm to sleep under. I decided to shop around for a cotton bedspread and learned that those are now hard to come by. I tried shopping online, but I can't afford the prices, which are $50 and up for full-size spreads. Then, I went to Walmart and found one there for $39, but something told me to hold off, as that was a bit high for me, too. I'm glad I did, as I lucked out the other day at a local salvage store called Marden's. There is no rhyme or reason to how their stores are set up, and no two are alike. The closest I can get to describing them is to Ocean State Job Lots, which also are stores that are more geared to browsing than actual shopping. Way out back of the store, I noticed two floor bins that contained a jumble of bedspread sets. They were mostly all Queen and King sizes, but I found one lurking in the bottom for a Full bed. And the price was right up my alley: just $15! It's a pretty pattern of soft blues and grays, and will match up well with my blue bedroom curtains. The set also includes two pillow, shams, so that will really improve the looks of my room. I'll remake the bed with the new set once I get my laundry done later this week. Not only will it be nice to slide in under a new a much cooler spread, it will be nice to see my newly "redecorated" bedroom, too. (Public Domain Image)

That WAS a lucky find! One of these days I plan to change the look of my bedroom...but for now the chocolate comforter with the turquoise embroidery is still working just fine (even though it is almost 5 years old).
